was passionate too in his professional and his personal pursuit in defense of each of them. and because he was he made a truly magnificent contribution to public affairs here in the united states under the leader system america. that is why i'm very pleased brian to be in your company and with that mariana. i might say in your professional career you have epitomized the characteristics of your dad in so many ways in speaking out and in standing up for the underprivileged and for those who have isolated for the cause of freedom and liberty and justice. you have proven to be an equally great friend of our country and a wonderful advocate for our country's cause here in the united states. as a proud irishman and proud european and taoiseach, which in the gaelic phrase is g4 leader though we refer to it as plain tee shots. they still young republic of a democracy and all that implies drives everything that i have to do. given the leadership level comes seldom in the lifetime of people when it comes it has to be grasped with both hands in and their interest in the country's interests. because i unders
national defense. even more so than the president's budget that he submitted last year. so while we're increasing spending on things that would drain our economy and deprive our children of obtaining jobs, we're compromising the very defense of our nation. and when does it balance? never. mr. chairman, i reject this budget and urge you to vote no. the chair: the time of the gentleman has expired. the gentleman from virginia. mr. scott: thank you, mr. chairman. i yield myself 30 seconds just before i yield to the gentlelady from the virgin islands. the chair: the gentleman is recognized for 30 second. mr. scott: the gentleman just complained about the obamacare taxes. what he didn't say is that the republican budget keeps all the taxes. they just repeal the benefits. the republican budget also does not cancel the sequester. the sequester is estimated to cost 700,000 to two million jobs. it does not cancel the sequester. in fact, they have additional cuts that would even add to those job losses. mr. chairman, i yield two minutes to the gentlelady from the virgin islands. the chair: th
in the defense of the majority that that's the way it's been for several years, both when the republicans were in charge and when the democrats are in charge. thea's thacharge that doesn't mean it is right. you have to share it. so then we had to turn around and start voting on the amendments the next morning in the budget committee and we weren't part of that process, because it was on partisan lines. i was particularly disheartened by one amendment that failed on a party-line vote that was offered by senator portman from ohio. his amendment was simply asking the congressional budget office to provide additional information with the cost estimates that it provides on legislation affecting revenues. that's right. it was just asking for additional information. and every member of the majority voted against it. how could a request for additional information be so partisan? we can and must do better for our constituents and our country. several weeks from now we may see the president's budget proposal. of course it'll be late to the game since the house and senate have already acted on the budget

't believe this. an eye-opening breach of u.s. national security. a defense contractor charged are sharing everything from missile defense plans to information about u.s. nuclear weapons to a chinese woman he was dating. he met her at a conference where she may have targeted him. she remains here in the u.s. not charged at this point. now to the story threatening the global economy and affecting stocks here at home. outrage is growing in the small nation of cyprus. the government would seize 10% of the people's bank accounts for the bailout. banks are shut down to prevent people from withdraws their savings. >>> here at home, a computer glitch set off a panic for chase customers. when they checked the balances in their accounts, they saw this. the bank says it was there error. the problem is resolved. >> good news. i thought it was just me. >>> now to winter's blast. snow and ice hitting so much of the country. with an update of sorts, sam champion, the man we're blaming this morning. >> let's show you how much the entire eastern coast of the country, enveloped in the country. up to 10 inc
of irresponsibility in the republican budget is defense. instead of increasing pentagon spending, we should reform it. the most obvious target is the nuclear arsenal larger than anything we need for nuclear deterrence. 10% of our nuclear weapons would decimate russia. a handful of missiles would wipe north korea off the map. yet they propose to spend over 2/3 of a trillion dollars over the next 10 years on this bloated arsenal. before we increase the pentagon budget, maybe we should figure out why the f-35 joint strike fighter, which is now seven years behind schedule, 70% over budget, and the pentagon still doesn't know how it's going to meet the more than $1 trillion in operating and maintenance cost. amazingly the republicans want to increase spending for the pentagon, the only major budget so flawed it can't even be audited. there are bipartisan opportunities to reduce and reform the military, but you're not hearing about it in the republican budget this week. instead of a republican rerun of a bad reality tv show, let's consider working together on areas to change how the government does busines
what the impact of the sequestration is going to be on the budget. the department of defense, because we've had no budget out of harry reid and the democrats on the senate side for four years, we've been operating on continuing resolutions. when you have continuing resolution that takes the previous year funding levels and you have to request changes. frankly it's cost the american taxpayer hundreds of millions of dollars and had an impact but it belongs on harry reid's seat. >> neil: commander. thank you. i think harry reid needs lanny davis, five rules with coping for crisis in business, politics and life. among them is talking straight, right? >> harry reid has a very good heart and i am sorry that the commander jumps to impugning motives rather than disagreeing with the way senator reid did it. i would call it a gaffe. >> neil: you think he was making an incorrect link? >> i don't think he meant to. he's too good of a man. >> neil: he mentioned it in the context of the soldiers and -- not good and crisis management rule number 1 is when you make a mistake, you immediately say i di

's defense. it is actually the antithesis of what we need. when the budget certainty and flexibility. sequestration compromises our readiness and compounds risk. left unaddressed, it could lead to a security gap, a lapse in coverage against threats to our national security interests. it is also the law. i'm hopeful but not optimistic that both its magnitude will be defused in the budget deal appeared in the meantime we have no choice but to prepare for its effect, which is our worst-case scenario. are you feeling afflicted? if you are, you're in good company. let me tell you this. the coverage, to continue my insurance metaphor, maybe a little less than what you were used to, but it is still the best available. and it is going to get better in time. here is where i hope my confidence bring some comfort. last week i called our joint chiefs and our combatant commanders to discuss how we will lead to this latest contraction, and it is the latest contraction. it is a bit of a historical pattern. in that room, where over 600 years of military experience was around the table, i thought we
, education, health care and any other program this government wishes to undertake, including defense. mr. president, what kind of time limit might i inquire? is it 30 minutes on this side on this motion? the presiding officer: on the motion, there is one hour equally divided. would the senator like to call up his motion? mr. sessions: my first question would be how much time is left on my half of that hour? the presiding officer: the motion has not yet been called. mr. sessions: well, i would call up the motion, mr. president. the presiding officer: the clerk will report the motion. the clerk: the senator from alabama, mr. sessions, moves to recommit senate concurrent resolution 8 back to the committee on budget with instructions to report back no later than march 22, 2013, with such changes as may be necessary to achieve unified budget balance by fiscal year 2023. mr. sessions: so this motion would simply say this to our colleagues, and it will be a defining vote for our members, and members need to understand the meaning of this vote. the question will be do you favor a balanced budget
atcludes the sequester level. there is flex ability for the military, department of defense and a few other areas that allow money to be moved to areas of greater priority. the house republicans passed to that thest year so across-the-board cuts did not occur in the way they have occurred. we felt there was much greater flexibility. we need to be wiser about this. we need to get the economy rolling again. and across-the-board cut is not the wisest way to do that. we did not get corroboration from the senate or the president. host: when it comes to the budget, which begins october 1, are there cuts to government spending in the ryan budget? guest: that is one of the great myths. people on the other side say you're slashing and burning. the fact of the matter is, this is the path we are on now. is theleft of that amount of debt the government has held since world war ii in the gray. you come up to where the rant -- red and green begin, that is the current path we are on. we are destined to take more and more and more debt on as a country, unless we change things. the green line is our budget,
they return here on c-span. today marks the 10th anniversary of the iraq war. here's part of what defense secretary hagel had to say about it in a statement released earlier from the pentagon. >> 34 years ago today, we began providing televised access to the everyday workings of congress and the federal government. the c-span networks, created by america's cable companies in 1979 and brought to you as a public service by your television provider. >> we could take pictures of the brain with m.r.i. scans or c.t. scans or pet scans and see the whole thing. there is this enormous gap in between about how the circuits in the brain function in order to be able to move my hand or to look at you and process that information, or lay out in memory. we don't know how that works. with technologies yet to be invented, a lot of this is going to be technology development, a lot of it will be nanotechnology, what we aim to do is be able to record from thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of brain cells at the same time, be able therefore to underis stand how these circuits work. that's the brain activi
the stand for a fourth day and the jury gets to ask him questions after the defense tried to do some damage control after his cross-examination. abc's ryan owens is in phoenix, arizona, this morning with the latest. good morning to you, ryan. >> reporter: good morning, josh. arizona is one of only three states that allows jury members to actually ask questions of the witness. we understand they have a whole lot, some 70 questions for the good doctor who has been on the stand all week. >> nothing but the truth, so help you god. >> i do. >> reporter: dr. richard samuels is pivotal to jodi arias' defense. the psychologist who made $250 an hour evaluating the 32-year-old admitted killer diagnosed her with ptsd. he says the stress of shooting and repeatedly stabbing her ex-boyfriend, travis alexander, caused her to forget committing the crime. >> right, made it up right now. speculated. >> nope. clinical judgment, sir. >> reporter: he's had a tough few days on the stand. he was even forced to acknowledge arias lied to him during the ptsd test. back then she said she was so traumatized because sh
israel insists at end of the day it have defensible borders because we are not going back to the '67 lines which were armistice lines and not international recognized boundaries. we have to protect ourselves. >> mike: there was one point when the president said something that made my head turn almost completely around and i'm anxious to get your reaction to it, dore. he said something about the palestinians needing to be able to move around without having a foreign army directing your movement. do you think that many israelis bristolled at the notion they are considered a foreign army in land that is historically, biblically and even militarily over the last 50-60 years theirs? >> not everything is in accord between the u.s. and israeli view and we know that. in the previous speech in cairo the president gave the audience there the impression that israel was a phenomenon that was created after the holocaust, after world war ii but said nothing about our earlier roots in the land and as you know, governor huckabee, you go to the city of david and you can find royal seals of the kingdo
to tell him what sel self-defense firearms to buy. he is so reckless on this whole gun issue. we have people all over, millions of people sending us five, ten, 15, 20 dollar checks saying, stands up to this guy that says we can only have three bullets, which is what he said. stand up to this guy that says ridiculous things like the nra wants firearms with nukes on them. it's insane. >> after weeks of bipartisan negotiations between chuck schumer and tom colburn fail to advance and john mccain is emerging as a critical player in talks to expand background checks. susan collins and dean heller could fine off on the bill after the democrats included several modifications aimed at attracting support electric the right. a recent quinnipiac poll finds the majority are in favor of background checks. senate majority leader reid said we will not include it in the package. he doesn't believe an assault weapons ban will get through. are you with what might get through? >> i would have kept the assault weapons ban in. >> you would have? >> i disagree with senator reid. i think he should have made
of the best parts, it gets our priorities right. and it provides for the common defense. there is only a few things we should be doing here, but it provides that. it replaces and repeals the president's sequester and makes sure our men and women in uniform have what they need. i encourage my colleagues to support this bill that gets our economy growing and has our priorities right and protects and preserves those programs for our seniors and provides for the common defense. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady's time has expired. the gentleman from maryland. mr. van hollen: let's be very clear. if you give states one-third of the amount of money they are currently getting from medicaid and ask them to do the same job, which is what this budget would do just 10 years from now, you will, as the nonpartisan independent congressional budget office, say, quote, reduce access to care. that's the bottom line. with respect to the voucher program, premium support again, i don't really care what label you attach to it. the impact is the same. if you want to achieve the out-years budget savings our
function for the federal government, not to mention national defense and homeland security, every other function of the federal government will have to be paid for with borrowed money because our revenues will only pay for these few programs, which is eating up all of our expenditures. i go back to their statement. "debt held by the public will outstrip the entire american economy. going through as much as 185% of g.d.p. by 2035. interest on the debt could rise to nearly $1 trillion by 2020." that's just six years away. "these mandatory payments," they said, "which buy absolutely no goods or services, will squeeze out funding for all other priorities." so not only will the uncontrollable growth of mandatory spending squeeze out funding for all other programs or priorities in our country, but it will also jeopardize the safety net that we have put in place for retirees who have worked hard and put money aside to become eligible when they retire for social security and medicare, and for those who find themselves in a situation where medicaid is a necessary safety net. we've always taken p
not visit. secretaries of defense routinely visit countries where we do not have troops deployed, but it would get everybody guessing, wouldn't it? in a similar vein, i would like to see the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff visit. these kind of visits provide a framework to get at questions like balances, institutions vs individuals, arms sales and their conditions and some useful words of advice, both to those in the ascendancy and to those in the opposition, because as i said, i think all parties need it. one individual who has not yet come of it is muqtada all solder. i am keen to hear your thoughts -- muqtada al-sadr. i am keen to hear your thoughts on him playing a constructive role as a shia nationalist figure and potentially seeking to break further from the broader shia coalition and ally unnis andent with sienese kurds, playing the role of a spoiler. would that be a positive development, in any of your fors, or a prescription even more trouble ahead? >> muqtada al-sadr has been a rather unpredictable player on qi stage.a he came in on a wave of love and admiration b
into the basketball hall of fame but these days he's playing defense against cars. >> i was in the weight room one day and guys were in there talking. they say they like to do some things for some kids. maybe one hour a day. one guy said my wife is a crossing guard. i said that would be a good job for me. i can stay busy, spend time with the kids. do something for the community and that's why i'm here. >> he's also making a smart play. he qualifies for the county's health insurance benefits. one hour a day, five hours a week and he gets the summer off. this year it's saving him a lot of money he told me. >> well, you know, in the nba, in the nba even though you make a lot of money, they don't pay for your health premiums and me watching the news and business and the premiums goes up every year and i joke with people, i told my wife, you know what? i don't care how much money that people might think i might have, i'm not going to spend $17,000 on health insurance. that's what i spent last year. >> adrian is earning those benefits and he's had a couple close calls with drivers not paying attention but h
and read from. didn't seem electrified by it. >> but read it is a defense of how -- we are talking mainly how he was received. >> he wasn't received well. another person who was not received well was bobby jindal. >> i heard that fell flat too. he was telling old jokes? >> a lot of jokes he did at the gridiron. talking about eric holder. >> i see eric holder is here. no, he wasn't. >> that's cpac. yeah, pretty likely. >> you need to draw that line there that. >> he did a whole slot on knotsberry farm that fell flat. nobody got it. >> two wig winners, rand paul and won the straw poll going away and receiving with his speech and marco rubio did really well. i think you see chris christie sitting there with 7% -- >> who? >> chris christie. >> he was not only excluded, he was insulted there by some extreme voice. >> insult chris christie, you only make him stronger. >> i know. ron, chris christie couldn't have had it any better. first of all, he didn't have to go to cpac and, secondly, he was on everybody's mind at cpac and, third, he fred ahead from the vice presidential nominee in the polli

of defense and we knew when they came into the room, the situation room, when they heard the report, how the decisions were made in that white house. and we knew when people left the situation room perhaps to go to something else, i don't remember any of them just simply going to bed. what we don't know is this, this is what this congress needs to put together. we need to have a select committee, a joint committee -- excuse me, mr. speaker, we need a committee that is a committee comprised of the best individuals we can find from the relevant committees here in this congress, or any other individuals in this congress that have special expertise that raise their knowledge base and their credibility to the point where we can get the maximum report coming out of this congress, the circumstances that we have today on looking into the benghazi incident and the events that flowed from that are several committees that have part of the jurisdiction. the select committee on intelligence has part of the jurisdiction. and they have held some hearings and they have some knowledge. we don't know what
spending and our defense spending and we need to make these expressions of our priorities around our future. some of that will require additions, some of that will require subtractions. these are the things we need to do to have a balanced approach. this is the choice that this congress should have. an approach that invests in our future and changes the fundamental trajectory of our entitlement programs while taking care of those most vulnerable. that to me is a balanced approach. i'm proud to be a democrat. i'm proud to be a democrat because of our historical fight for those left behind and because of our view that we have to invest in our future. i would like my party to lead on fundamental reform to these entitlement programs and do it now so we don't have to affect current beneficiaries or people who are close to being beneficiaries and i want to take those savings with additional tax revenues and invest it in r future, invest it in our children, invest it in making this country more competitive so that we can create jobs and have a good standard of living. thank you, mr. speaker. the c
professional and personal pursuits in defense of each of them. because he wasn't because he did, he made a truly magnificent contribution to public affairs here in the united states under the legal system in america. that is why i am very pleased to marianna company of and eileen. would say you have epitomized the characteristics of your diet in speaking out and stand up for the underprivileged, for those who are isolated, and the cause of freedom and liberty and justice, and you have proven to be a uniquely great friend of our country and a wonderful at took for our country's cause in the united states. a a pride in irishman, as --ud european, and as a which in gaelic is chief or democracy and drives everything i have to do, the mandate of democracy given that leadership level comes sell them in a lifetime of people, and when it comes, it has to be grasped in both hands in their interests and their country boss interest. i understand what so many years in politics that the democratic system is a politician and most powerful weapon that they possess, which is the boat and their vote, and
. the republican budget cuts non-defense discretionary spending to levels lower than at any time since o.m.b. started keeping track a half a century ago. the republican budget would set annual domestic spending at rates lower than 1962, when there were no pell grants at all, when 30% of american seniors lived in poverty. but that's not extreme. a democratic budget that is 50-50 spending cuts and revenues, that's a left-wing manifesto. the democratic budget has $975 billion in new spending cuts. it has $975 billion in new revenue in order to close that budget gap 50-50. that means including the deficit reduction that we've already done -- this, of $1.8 trillion -- we will be in total at $4.3 trillion in deficit reduction, which is probably just a little bit over the target that most of the experts have given us to hit. and about $2.8 trillion of that, of the $4.3 trillion will come in spending cuts. $600 billion has come in new tax revenue, and $975 billion will come from loopholes for a total of $1.6 trillion coming from new revenues. some left-wing manifesto. $1 trillion more in spendin
americans that are dead. the secretary of state was not in conversation with the secretary of defense or with the chair of the joint chiefs of staff. >> reporter: i think that is an important point but this is another. >> the president of the united states didn't care about those four americans and they were killed. that is the point. >> reporter: if you're going to focus -- >> that's what's important. you talk about dog handlers and there are four americans killed? >> reporter: congresswoman you are the one who brought it up. >> walking and walking and walking. dana is here in the situation room. dana, you were both in heels, too. that's not that easy to be walking that quickly. what was it like when you were trying to ask simple, straight forward questions and she didn't really want to answer them. >> no she didn't. what really surprised me was she wouldn't let me sort of get the question in because, look. michele bachmann has certainly not answered my questions and others in the past but she generally is -- stops and is polite and smiles, a different kind of an experience there to
that did not like a defense missile, you have to knock one out that is worth $380 million, tell us about it. >> this is just ridiculous, larry, so $380 million in the continuing resolution that was just on the senate floor, over a trillion dollars in spending and yet we have sequester $380 million for a missile to nowhere that the army does not want that will never produce anything. we have already spent $3 billion on it. so my amendment was to strike that wasteful spending and by the way, it has bipartisan support. the democratic chairman of the armed services amendment called it a waste of money. can you believe it in we cannot strike $380 million of wasteful expending and put that money to real use for our troops and that's why -- >> you know, harry reid a accused the sequester of killing the eight marines. this terrible the exercise, reid of all people should want to save money in the pentagon in order to put more money back in training which i may add that the marine corp denied, but the point is, you are up his alley, why is he not behind you on this? >> i agree, if we cannot cut some
what ryan is trying to do -- because he does put caps on defense spending, she puts caps on other spending -- that maybe in a weird way, there is a way to bridge this divide. what do you think? >> i don't think they're going to bridge the divide. the fact the republicans control the house, people are happy that at least the republicans, the ryan plan, they're trying to do the right thing. it balances, even though they don't believe it ought to take ten years. secondly, it defunds obamacare. you had handearlier done. >> neil: that's a nonstarter, right? you're not a fan of obamacare but to defund it, how likely is that? >> it's not likely at all. but, neil, people on main street want people to at least do the right things for the right reason and the rollout of obamacare has been such a dollars, businesses are dropping insurance. businesses are trying to get workers to work below 30 hours so they don't have to pay the fine. i get all kind of calls on my radio show where people are looking for ways to survive, like betsy mccoy talked about, and that's because obamacare is basically
committees, whether defense or help or others. so when we talk often about the values embedded in a budget resolution, that's in part because a budget resolution is just the beginning of a regular order, healthy budget process. it then has to be complimented -- complemented with authorizations bills and with appropriations bills. but if you compare the budget resolution that's already been adopted in the house and that was rejected in a vote here on the floor last night with the budget resolution that's come out of the senate budget committee, i think you see a few simple, stark differences. both budget resolutions raise a significant amount of revenue through tax reform by closing so-called tax loopholes or cutting spending through the tax code. this is spending that isn't reviewed every year. this is spending that often has been stuck into the tax code through the efforts of the wealthy, well connected, powerful interests in our country that don't get reviewed every year, and it is time for us to look seriously at our tax code to make it leaner, easier to understand, easier to enforce, m
on tuesday involving california's proposition 8, the ban on same-sex marriage. the second strs on the defense of marriage act which defines marriage as between a man and a woman. cnn.com has been covering this very extensively. john, you recently followed some gay couples. i looked at some videos you had this morning, trying to get married in mississippi, a state that bans same-sex marriage. here's a clip of that. >> this application is a record, and it is a permanent record. but we're showing it's denied. >> i can't imagine what it might be like to be in your position, to have to tell people who clearly have a home together, share things and love each other -- >> i appreciate you all -- >> that's part of a story on cnn.com by john sutter. also with us is ryan anderson of the heritage foundation. he's also written on this issue for cnn.com. ryan's most recent column argues that the court should not rewrite marriage laws. so first to john. what compelled you to get so invested in putting together these pieces on same-sex marriage for cnn.com. >> i think there's an incredible amount of bravery
challenging the defense of marriage act and a ban on same-sex marriage. the court has evolved on this issue dramatically. 17 years ago, only 27% of americans were in favor of same-sex marriage. today, well over half the court supports marriage equality. sometimes change is slow. sometimes it's hard to see. sometimes it gets lost in the daily battles out of washington. but this is real. this is what progress looks like. the president and the country are winning the progressive argument and are moving the country forward. joining me now is congresswoman donna edwards, democrat from maryland, and patricia murphy from citizen jane politics. thanks for your time. >> thank you. >> congresswoman, are some of the right finally acknowledging big shifts on social issues? >> well, i think that what the president has done is he's actually demonstrated what leadership is, and that is moving a country that was kind of middle of the road on some of these issues and recognizing the direction that we needed to go and i think that the right has completely underestimated the fact that the american public is m
you wen education, weaker in defense, by laying people off in jobs, it makes you weaker because your unemployment rate is higher. it is like looking in the mirror and wishing your weaker. we have to be stronger. can we make cuts? sure we can and we have and we'll make more. but we ought to be focused on being stronger, about growing the economy and growing jobs. and that's why the approach that the senate takes is the right approach. because by utilizing revenues appropriately, reforming tax expenditures to reduce they will on the equivalent of% o 7% or 8a year, thee myriad of tax expenditures in the tax code were able to find cuts. the senate budget in achieving additional deficit reduction is a balanced approach that will make us stronger, not weaker, and that's why it is my great hope that we will pass this in a significant way. i thank the chairman. i thank you, madam president. mrs. murray: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator from washington. mrs. murray: i want to thank the senators virginia and hawaii for excellent statements and really laying out the framework

single out the defense measures in this budget and to applaud, again, the leadership of the chairman on the budget committee for protecting our military, for giving it funding it otherwise would not have and the flexibility it needs to help protect and keep this country safe. the defense department is the one area in government where strategy should drive the budget, not the budget driving the strategy. and in the second way that it protects our military from a debt crisis, this budget as we've heard is designed to postpone and prevent a debt crisis caused by out of control reckless spending, anemic economic growth of the kind you've seen in countries in europe already. if that were to happen, not only would it impact families all across the country, when their interest rates for mortgages and farms and small piss and education increases, but it also crowd out all other kinds of priorities in our federal budget, it would immediately impact as well our troops, their families, and our veterans. i yield back my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back his time. the gentl
